Default Bush And Texans Engage in Contract Proposals.

Just seen on ESPN and reported by Len Pasquerilli. I'll post a link when I find it. It was on during the Texans On The Clock

Kiper had us looking at DeMeco Ryans in the 2nd round if he fell. Eric Winston was the other player he mentioned.
Quote:
The Houston Texans and the agent for Southern California tailback Reggie Bush on Friday exchanged contract proposals for the first time, and spent part of the day in long-distance talks aimed at reaching an agreement before the start of the draft, ESPN.com learned through multiple league sources.

While the exchange of numbers does not necessarily signal that the Texans have decided they will select the Heisman Trophy winner with the first overall pick on April 29, it is still a significant step. Because they own the first choice, the Texans are free to negotiate with any of the prospects, and there is a chance they are conducting similar talks with North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams, the other player Houston has been considering as a candidate for the top spot.

I'm sure they have been discussing T's and C's behind the scenes since Bush's visit last week or the week before - whenever it was.

Eight more days till draft day and until the commish calls his name when we pick, I'm not buying anything. But if it is true then it's good news.

Awesome. The only thing better than a Bush-Ryans first two would be a Bush-Ryans-Colledge first three.

Big Deal, Its still nothing but cloak and dagger till Paul Tagliabue announces it, or until we have a signed contract on someone. Everything until then is just keeping the rest of the NFL on its toes so that we give ourselves the best oppurtunity for a deal come draft day.

If the agent is really headed for Houston then they really are trying to work out a deal. Again, I keep saying Bush has more to loose in this deal by being to demanding. We will have to wait and see. Seems like the agent said things could be complicated. I would interpret that as meaning he wants a lot.

John Clayton reiterated on ESPN's draft special what's been said many times over the last few days - Mario not offered contract, Texans had been "dancing around", trying to get Bush's value down, expects Texans to draft Bush...
